Futures For Kids, the charity backed by
the futures and options industry, has launched an appeal for
supporters to donate their lunch money to the charity ahead of
its annual fund-raising day on May 15.
FFK said commuters spend on average
£10.59 each day on lunch and drinks, and this sum "would
be a very meaningful donation to the children FFK helps".
The charity said £5 will provide a
notebook and pen for 20 children in Malawi, which would allow
them to go to school, or pay for a birth certificate for
orphaned and vulnerable children. FFK said £10 could
provide a disabled child a wheelchair.
The charity has asked that people donate
their lunch money via the Futures
For Kids Just Giving page.
FFK Day takes place this year on May 15
and the charity has asked brokers, traders, exchanges, clearing
houses and just about everyone else to get involved by throwing
fund-raising events, which could be almost anything from a cake
sale or dress down day to putting your boss in some stocks.
Participants can also take part in the
annual FFK Walk to Work which has in its first three years
raised over £180,000 for worthwhile charities.
